Pure Salmon Kaldnes aims to export fish welfare
Pure Salmon Kaldnes is now gearing up for growth, and among their main goals is helping to increase fish welfare and to reduce the industry´s environmental footprint internationally.
Delilvers RAS to Tjuin
One of these projects is SalMar´s giant project Tjuin at Malm in Steinkjær, where work on the facility began in May and the first construction phaze will be completed in 2023.
This will be one of the world´s largest and most advanced facilities for the production of juvenile fish. The recirculation technology, which is supplied by Pure Salmon Kaldnes, ensures that the facility will reduce fresh water consumption with more than 97 percent compared to traditional flow through systems.
«There was a lot of competition to get the assignment, but Pure Salmon Kaldnes was chosen due to price, technology and experience. We have had several good processes with the former aquaculture division at Krüger Kaldnes, and we are now looking forward to further collaboration with Pure Salmon Kaldnes,” say biology project
manager at SalMar, Karl Christian Aag.
The project has a budget of NOK 1.2 billion. In total, the area will provide an opportunity to produce about 50 million smolts, but the preliminary plan for the development is one facility with the capacity of 20 million smolts.
Company debut at Aqua Nor
The Aqua Nor fair in Trondheim from 23 August to 27 August will be the first time the former Krüger Kaldnes division makes a public apperance as the new Pure Salmon Kaldnes AS.
“Now we are truly looking forward to presenting ourselves for both new and exisiting customers in Trondheim,” say operations director Frode Eriksen.
